What does WPH believe in?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!


Discovering Career Success through Sales and Service in Hamilton
Employing almost one in four Hamilton workers, sales and service occupations play an essential role in our community's labour market.  

WPH's latest research was been developed to provide insight into Hamilton's top occupational group and the career growth and opportunities available.

As Hamilton becomes a more service-central economy, demand for sales and service workers is projected to increase through to 2020. It is vital to clear any misconceptions there may be about sales and service occupations and ensure workers understand how to develop valuable skills out of EVERY job.
